Looks good; I found few typos i.e. PPRIVATE and pprivate (is that 

Also, on a more substantial point, these are all positive tests; would 
it make sense to have also some negative tests to verify that:

* you can't get access outside nestmate boundaries (perhaps hard to 
write/compile with javac, but should be doable with reflection)
* private members are not accidentally inherited (again, hard to 
write/compile with javac)
